ISLAMABAD, Aug 11 (Gwadar Pro) - Animal Quarantine Department of the Ministry of National Food Security and Research has registered Royal Cell Biotechnology (Pakistan) for export of embryos, ova and frozen semen of buffaloes to China.
The registration will enable the Royal Cell to start exporting embryos, ova and frozen semen of Pakistani buffaloes to China. The company has already fulfilled all requirements of the Chinese government.

“In the next phase, we will get registration for our dairy farm located at Sheikhupra as a disease-free compartment, after which we will be able to export milk and meat products to China as well.
